Editorial Reviews

Review

“The authors articulate a systematic method of case analysis for facing challenges in clinical ethics built upon what they refer to as the ‘four topics approach,’ neatly summarized on a single-page pullout reference card, providing easy portability of the method to the bedside... the authors provide numerous realistic case examples throughout, which help illustrate a number of the key concepts in the text…The authors have admirably updated their text with newer ethical concerns.” (Journal of American Medical Association 2006-10-18)

    The authors suggest another method of evaluating ethical dilemmas. They suggest one examine the situation in light of medical indications, patient preferences, quality of life, and contextual features.

    Because the approach is clinical, rather than theoretical, some of the medical details presented are somewhat technical. This is a book for those working in a medical setting or otherwise engaged with medical ethics.

    I read the book based on the recommendation of a bioethics lecturer. It was further recommended recently by the Director of the Program in Medical Ethics for University of California, Irvine.

    Dr. Jonsen is one the nation's germinal thinkers in the field of bioethics. Through his experience and associations at several of the renowned medical academic institutions in this coutnry he sets forth a clear systematic approach to problems in bioethics. This includes a review of his "4-box" method for approaching ethical problems and then reviews basic ethical principles as well as legal definitions. His approach to clincal dilemmas provides a refreshing analytical process for dilineating issues and conflicts.
